One of America’s biggest holidays is coming up and Carlota and I were in the festive mood with this fun shoot. I’m not sure what we are going to do for 4th of July but I do hope it involves a pool, BBQ and some cocktails! Our weekend will be one big celebration because Canada’s day is on July 1st. Unfortunately we didn’t have a Canadian flag to take pictures with or you know we would have a Canada’s day themed post as well. Ohhh well something to plan for next year.
I definitely have a love affair with jumpsuits and rompers. I think they are super flattering and chic. I love that you can dress them down or up depending on the occasion. I usually veer towards black jumpsuits but decided to get out of my comfort zone when finding this red number. I was a little nervous with the cut out back, but as soon as I put it on I fell in love. It’s high waisted so it exposes all the right places. (Post-baby love handles are no joke!!) I have a few birthday’s and showers coming up and this outfit will most likely make an appearance.
What are your plans for 4th of July??

These photos were taken when Carlota turned 1. She’s already almost 15 months…..I think time is on fast forward. Carlota is advancing and changing daily, I feel like I can barely keep up. She is signing when she’s hungry, talking up a storm, and running all over the place. I totally get it now when moms would say it gets harder when they start walking. When she was first born I didn’t believe it for a second. How can it be harder than this?? My time is already 100% consumed. Well it does!! You will look back at that first year and think boy if only I was more relaxed. Don’t get me wrong though we totally have so much fun together now. We get to interact in different ways and I love the way she looks at me and runs around the house calling for her Mami!!
If I could match Carlota every day…I think I would. I love twinning with her. Why don’t they make adult versions of all toddler clothes? hehe. I know most things would probably not look as cute on me as they do her, but hey its worth a shot. When I found this little shop on Instagram and I saw they made an adult version of this sweatsuit I knew it was my chance to match my babe. I’m taking advantage of this now, while I’m still her most favorite person and she lets me dress her however I want. Let’s hope she will love matching her mama for years to come. I’m keeping my fingers crossed even though I know its a long shot.
What are some of your favorite mommy and me matching outfits or brands? I would love to find some more!!
